Still image of Warhol: From a to b and back again

Leading figures in art, film and cultural criticism examined the complexity of Andy Warhol’s work, its significance for recent art practice, and its larger cultural implications. Discussion focused, in particular, on the question of Warhol’s media. Is Warhol an artist of ‘the post-medium age’, or is the character of each medium central to his practice? Can Warhol’s public persona be seen as a medium-specific work?

Participants include: Mark Francis, Director, fig-1, and formerly curator and director, Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; artist Michael Craig-Martin; Donna De Salvo, Senior Curator, Tate Modern; J. Hoberman, critic for The Village Voice and others.
